To the Editor:

Last night I attended the Cloquet versus Esko basketball game, and prior to going to the game I had planned to vote yes in the new school bond referendum, but after attending the game last night I see that priorities are not where they should be.

While I don’t attend many sporting events I will say that when the school song was played parents and other adults stood for the school song and showed the respect it deserved, but the entire student section sat there, never once standing.

This is a sign of respect for the school song and apparently with all the talk of a new school there is no teaching the kids of what is right and wrong... I had people sitting next to me from Esko and they even commented on this saying they don’t show respect for Cloquet when they do this, and I had to shake my head and agree.

The school song has been a part of the school history and should be taught to kids to stand and show honor to their school (it’s the right thing to do), and I’m sorry if you can’t teach kids what’s right or wrong how to act... apparently you are failing  in your jobs.

Worry more about teaching the kids and not the overpriced school you want us to support so the kids can have a future... when they don’t know enough to stand and show respect it seems they are not being taught to begin with.

SHAME ON YOU!
